Paper Twirlies Team Inspiration Challenge May 2012

I'm a member of the Paper Twirlies team on Etsy, a fairly small group of gals who love paper and quilling. In the past we've tried to participate in team challenges, it's been awhile, but we're doing one this month - an inspiration challenge. With some willing fellow Etsy sellers, a host of pictures have been chosen to keep us inspired. The first challenge photo is brought to us by Clothscapes - here is what she says about her wonderful quilt. 


A dramatic quilt made with cream organic cotton surrounding a graduated square spiral of 84 different shades, beginning with deep purple in the center and moving all the way through the spectrum to end with deep red. The binding is a dark scarlet and the backing is verigated from blue to gold.


I wasn't sure what I wanted to create but I knew it would be colorful and surrounded by white. Lately I've been working on earrings so I've been in a jewelry mode, so I decided to make a ring - although I think this design would look cool as earrings and may have to make some to match. 

Instead of squares I chose to work with circles - I LOVE circles. I choose 6 colors to form the base of the ring, each surrounded by a border of white, for the center I chose a medium gray which actually sits up from the 6 brighter colors.
